Why I Choose Psychiatric Nursing
"There's a huge focus on teaching here. We have lunchtime learning lectures, workshops, and classes. Health care is always changing and it's nice to be at a hospital that's on the cutting edge, that's forward thinking and often molds the patient care practice that other hospitals follow."
